How Can An Injury Settlement Take Into Account Future Medical Needs?


Permanent injuries are terrifying, because you don’t know what may happen to you in the future.

If you suffer a permanent injury, Attorney Bruce A. Blaylock will speak directly with your treating doctor, and obtain a “permanency rating” on the percentage of the specific disability you have suffered.

In addition to the permanency rating, Attorney Bruce A. Blaylock will get additional information from the doctor as well, including:

  • How MUCH future medical treatment will be needed;
  • How LONG the future medical treatment will be needed;
  • What the COST will be of this future medical treatment?
  • Will there be a need for future surgery?
  • If so, what will be the cost of that future surgery, including the surgical fee, the anesthesiologist’s fee, the radiologist’s fee, the hospital fee, and any other costs associated with the procedure;
  • Are there any potential health problems which you may be more susceptible to as a result of the injuries sustained in this accident?
  • Will you need to be out of work for any period of time for subsequent medical treatment?  If so, for how long?

All of this information is then synthesized and then presented to the insurance company as part of the unique demand package system which Mr. Blaylock has developed from handling these types of cases over the course of several decades.  Please note, these future expenses are presented as additional damages that are above and beyond the compensation you are due for past and present pain and suffering, as well as other related expenses.

This process empowers you to get compensation for any future anticipated pain or expenses, and it is one of the many tools that Attorney Bruce A. Blaylock uses to protect his clients.
